"Typical frostings are too sweet for my taste. Instead, I prefer a whipped cream frosting and adding cocoa powder makes it even better! This will add an extra special topping to any dessert. Simple and delicious!"

I was looking for a frosting for a very rich chocolate cake with a very rich filling. I wanted a frosting that was not too heavy or too sweet. This was perfect! It was so easy to make and tasted great. Everyone raved about the entire cake. I don't have a whipping attachment for my food processor, so I made it with my mixer and it was still very easy. I followed the recipe exactly. Don't change a thing!


I used powdered sugar for a creamier version and a double recipe frosted my layer cake. So so good. I also don't like overly sweet frostings. On a dense chocolate cake it was awesome. And if you don't have a food processor buy one. It made this soooo easy. I dumped the ingredients in, turned it on and just frosted the cake for a very quick and easy frosting. Did I mention I love this recipe? Yum. Oh and I just used my blade attachment.


This is a GREAT change! We're from the U.S.A. but my husband is teaching at a university in China and the students love to try western food. The girls LOVE sweet, but most of the boys do not. Getting ready to frost a birthday cake for one of the boys, I was looking for a new recipe and by mistake clicked twice on the "sort by rating" and the description "too sweet for me" caught my eye. Everyone, even the girls, loved it! My husband really liked it! Since I do not have a food processor, I just whipped it with the mixer. Thanks for a nummy alternative to rich frosting!
